I make high fired colourful earthenware, mainly bowls, plates and tiles. Leaves, flowers, fruit and frogs feature in my decoration reflecting my interest in gardening. I use red clay, nothing special, just the cheapest I can find and a commercial transparent glaze. I use sponges, stencils, brushing and sgraffito to get the images onto my pots. I like to write on my pieces, maybe I am a repressed graffiti artist at heart. I fire in an electric top loader. I am still amazed by the alchemy that changes messy clay into bright, shiny objects.
